ENGLISH DINING SET Vintage AW LYN Kitchen TABLE & 6 CHAIRS
Oak Wood ca. 1935
An English Dining Set in Oak consisting
of an expandable Dining Table (with built-in leaves), plus six
(6) Chairs, circa 1935.
We are pleased to present this gorgeous
English Dining Set for your consideration. Made from solid Oak,
this 1930's era set includes an expandable Dining Table with
built-in leaves, plus six (6) matching Chairs. It was manufactured
by the Aw Lyn company in England. You will receive the
Dining Table. The Table is an
exceptional looking piece with dramatic wood details. The design
is unusual, with two pull-out leaves incorporated into the design
allowing the length to almost double when they are extended.
To extend the length, simply pull out the leafs. When fully
pulled out, the center section will drop down to the same surface
level as the leafs, with the curved outside edge of the center
section mating with the curved inside surface of the leaf.
The Table measures 47 inches in length
without the leafs. With them extended, the table increases in
length to 88 inches (each leaf adds 20-1/2 inches). The Table
is 29-1/4 inches in height and 33 inches wide. The solid wood
top is 3/4 inches thick.
The main Table surface shows moderate
wear to its finish, but the underlying wood is solid and in
good shape. The finish on the leafs is noticeably shiny, showing
much less wear. The Table has typical age appropriate wear,
but is free of any significant damage or issues. We rate its
condition as very good.
Six (6) Chairs. The Chairs have
a clean simple design with graceful flowing lines highlighted
by turned wood sections on the bottom of the front legs. The
seats are padded, with the tops covered in a checkerboard design
fabric colored in earthtones including pale blue and green.
The Chairs measure 36 inches in height,
with the seat 18-1/2 inches high. They are 19 inches deep overall,
and the seats range from 17-1/2 inches wide at the front, narrowing
to 14-1/2 inches wide at the back. The Chairs show the most
wear of the pieces in this Dining Set, with bumps and scratches
found at various places, most often at the outside edges and
corners. The fabric on the padded seats shows some soil and
light stains and spots, but nothing that looks too bad. All
of the Chairs are solid and sturdy. We rate them as being in
very good overall condition.
This is a gorgeous Dining Set, made in the
day when solid wood construction was the norm. Sure to increase
in value over time, the Dining Set would make a wonderful addition
to any décor!
